The 2012 Kymco GTi300 is packed and ready. Here is the list of things I did in the last two days to get her ready for this exciting work trip:

Changed oil and filter: Mobil 1 15w50 Syn

Changed rear tranny oil: Mobil 1 75w90 Syn

Installed cigeratte lighter/power point in the panel that covers the coolant overflow tank.

Installed GIVI E52 top case. Hope the nylon rack is capable of holding the GIVI. It has 5 pairs of pants, 5 race uniform shirts, all race prep materials, one pair of shoes, 5 pair of socks and a bunch of other items.

The rear shocks are set one notch above the softest settings but the spanner is on top of the stuff in the underseat tray so that I can make adjustments easily when I get up the road a couple of hundred miles if required.

Installed a pigtail for my Gerbings full sleeve liner. It resides in the underseat tray.

Set tire pressures 4 pounds above factory recommended pressures.

Adjusted the Ermax windshield and installed a Laminar lip. Works great by the way.

Intalled the required AMA Pro Racing stickers and paddock access sticker to get me into the Springfield Mile Flat Track race and Road America Road Race paddocks.

As I depart Dayona Beach in the morning my odometer reading is 2035 miles.

I only had time to ride about 120 miles in the last couple of days since the bike arrived just three days ago. Fuel economy on the first tank was 68 mpg. When I get back home to Daytona on the 5th of June I should have about 5200 miles. I will change oil and figure my average fuel economy.

Its asking a bit more than average for a 300 to do this. The Sac Harley Davidson large waterproof leather bag on the passenger pillion will be completely full as is the GIVI E52 and the underseat tray.

This shoudl be fun. If any scooter folks make it out to the Springfield Mile or Road America be sure to say hello.
